I just got my first very own skates! I’m very excited. I also ordered knee and elbow protection, a helmet. I bought a mouthguard and wristguards, too. I guess I’m stuck, now! No turning back!
Additionally, I have something pretty neat to announce! My Roller Derby name Every derby girl, worldwide, has a unique derby name. Because I already knew I wanted to play for some time, I’d already been thinking about it for a few weeks before my first training session. My name is…
I’m extremely excited about it! It’s actually the title of an Asian Steampunk book (first in a trilogy) my Australian buddy Jay Kristoff wrote and is about to be published next year. I asked him permission to use the name and he said a-okay! \o/ (P.S. his blog is really awesome and funny too, so go check it out!)
Other than that, last week’s been calm. Worked a lot on both the bachelor thesis and the other assignment (for International Organized Crime) I have to hand in November 1. Thank goodness I’m working on that one with someone else, she’s been a life saver so far. I’m spread way too thin!
Tomorrow’s the last International Organized Crime class – already. It’s pretty insane how fast time flew by, I feel like this school year only just begun and we’re already almost through October. Insane.
And also, for the sake of randomness, this song is stuck in my head.
Fun & stuff
